Rippon Gamay 2015 Lake Wanaka, Central Otago
Ripe, fresh and abundant bouquet with aromas of wild flowers, wild red berry fruits, a hint of bergamot and dried herb, gentle spice layer and earthy/mineral note. On the palate - plush, ripe, fruity, dry; flavours reflect the nose with some darker berries now present, floral with a violet note, dried herb and soil notes present, fine tannins, plenty of acidity and lengthy finish. Lovely example from the Otago region.
